What is Citizen Science?
Citizen Science projects use information collected by volunteers of any age to help scientists with their research. Scientists around the world need help collecting data. This helps them understand changes in our environment and how these changes impact our plants, animals and other natural resources. Anyone can be a citizen scientist! Projects are available for nearly any topic of interest and level of ability.

Citizen Science efforts of The North Carolina Arboretum Society are supported in part by a Ribbon of Hope Grant from the North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation.
